Sunday was the fourth straight day that the National Highway 6, which connects Tripura, Mizoram, Manipur, and the southern portion of Assam with the rest of the nation, was inaccessible as a result of landslides that were caused by persistent rains. In addition, the single line railway route that connects these states to the rest of the country has been inaccessible for the past 38 days.
On Sunday, the damaged portion of the National Highway 6 (NH-6) at Lum Shnong in East Jaintia Hills was inspected by Meghalaya Chief Minister Conrad K. Sangma, Home Minister Lahkmen Rymbui, district administration officials, PWD Engineers, and officials from the National Highways and Transportation Authority (NHAI).

However, the road is only accessible to those driving light motor vehicles. The Chief Minister engaged in conversation with truck drivers who were stuck in the region and reassured them that the government will provide any and all assistance that is reasonably attainable.
According to Sangma, work is now being done to restore the road link within the next 48 to 72 hours, however this is dependent on the weather. He stated that the repair effort is being impeded owing to the persistent rains; nevertheless, government is trying to guarantee that the road communication is restored.
To guarantee that this damaged section of the road can be used by motorists again, every possible effort is being made to repair it. On the other hand, there is a significant obstacle in the form of persistent rain. The damaged region cannot be repaired until the rain stops falling and the flow of water is redirected; only then will it be possible to start reconstruction “the statement was made by the Chief Minister to the media.
At Lum Shnong, streams from the hills have been gushing through the road, which has caused damage to the essential National Highway and has impeded the work being done to restore it. According to the official, there are over one thousand goods-laden trucks that are stranded along the route from Assam to Meghalaya. These vehicles are located on both sides of the road.

He stated that there had been breaches at around 61 different points in this segment, which had the effect of disrupting train connectivity to Tripura, Mizoram, Manipur, and portions of Assam. Restoration efforts have already been finished at 46 places, and efforts are now underway at 15 other crucial areas.
